Steve was a kind and jolly person who enjoyed good conversation with friends, family and even strangers. “Hoss” was the family nickname given to Steve, as he was truly a “gentle giant.” Steve volunteered for many causes throughout the years, including spending several weeks stacking sandbags during the flood of 1993. He enjoyed doing his part for any worthy cause when he was up to it.
Steve grew up in Glendale and went to grade school at Mary Queen of Peace Catholic School in Webster Groves and attended Webster High School. He worked at Algonquin Golf Club and had a small lawn business for many years, with most of his customers in the Webster/Kirkwood/Glendale area.
